Poured into DFH IPA glass; translucent, light orange-yellow with a moderate white head that fades into a lovely ring of foam that leaves incredibly fine lacing rings.
Smell is dank herbal hops, some tropical fruit and citrus, hint of pine and bitterness.
Taste is bitter, piney and herbal. No fruity hops detected, despite the fruity nose. Hint of bitter citrus rind perhaps, but that's about it. Hops destroy any malt flavor as well. Finishes dry with lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel is minimal, smooth and dry.
Overall, not the kind of IPA I'm a fan of. It's all bitterness, not much actual flavor. Not bad if that's your kind of IPA though.

My favourite Fordham brew thus far!

Pours a lighter than expected, hazy golden colour with a reasonable white head that has good retention. Resiny aroma has a very mild caramelized malt back-bone, with piney hops and candied tropical fruit at the forefront. The 7.5% ABV is scarily well hidden and there is only a hint of alcohol warmth in this finish. Malt sweetness rapidly transitions to a "west coast" hop burst before an abrupt bitterness.

I like it, but not suited for those looking for "subtle"...
